Once again, May is almost here, which means prom is coming soon to Como. Prom is an exciting time of year for many students, including many upperclassmen. In my interview with senior Keiron Sauer, he said “Prom was a lot of fun last year, and I’m looking forward to it again this year.”
Now, as we all know, the way you ask someone to prom can be a big factor in whether they say yes or no, there are many creative ways to do this. Not only is prom for upperclassmen, underclassmen can go if they are asked by someone who is a junior or a senior. This year’s prom is at the Dancer Studio Event Center on University Avenue on May 18th. Tickets are 35 dollars.
There is a lot that goes into the preparation of prom, both committees and teachers are involved. Last year’s prom was at the caves in downtown Saint Paul, and was a very fun experience for many students. Prom only comes around a couple times in your life, so you should take advantage of it.
Teachers join in on the fun as well, to supervise, of course, but it is also fun for them as well. In my interview with Bryce Stepan, an English teacher here at Como, he said it was fun for the teachers at well. They dress up, same as the students. “It is a lot of fun seeing the students act more mature and dress up at prom. Students act much more mature there.”
Prom is a fun event for everyone, students and teachers alike. It has been a tradition at Como since it opened in 1979. Help carry on the tradition, and make an appearance at this year’s prom!
